FUNDRAISING

Our number one need is capital. Our goal is to raise $220,000 to cover build-out, create awareness materials, and cover our initial operating expenses. Here's how you can help:

  • Partner with us financially (contributions are tax-deductible as we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization).
  • Help man a booth at farmers markets, holiday markets, churches, etc. to gain corporate, community and individual support.
  • Spread the word to family and friends you think would want to partner with us.
  • Give us your best ideas and volunteer your time for future fund raising events.
